What You Can Expect

Experience Paris: Baguette and Croissant Workshop

Experience Paris: Baguette and Croissant Workshop

Make your way to your traditional bakery in the heart of Paris, where you'll go into the kitchens for a behind-the-scenes lesson to learn the secrets of French bread.

A Parisian baker guides you through the lesson, during which you'll make two different kinds of baguettes as well as buttery, flaky croissants. Watch as your instructor demonstrates the proper techniques for preparing and handling dough, and then try your hand at recreating what you've just seen — with help as you need it. As you watch and work, listen to your instructor's tips to glean the secrets of French baking.

The pay-off for all your hard work is in taking your own freshly-baked baguette out of the oven and tasting it while it's still warm. When the workshop is finished, you'll have a baguette to take with you for a later picnic, as well as the recipes and know-how to recreate the experience in your own kitchen at home.

Amazing 2 hours with the master chef of the bakery! Through an English speaking interpreter, he shared his passion and methods of making bagettes and croissants. It was an incredible experience that we would highly recommend.

This was one of the highlights of our visit in Paris. Oh what fun it was! Started off in the basement where we learned how to make baguettes which we also got to take with us! and then upstairs to try our hand at croissants. Highly recommend!

If you are looking to do something different, then this will be perfect. Get a great insight insight into the workings of real life French bakery. Eating what you make is also pretty cool.

Absolutely outstanding. I went with my 9 year old daughter and she was the only child at the workshop. Didier included her in everything and helped her out with the hands on work, he was really amazing and patient with her. I thoroughly enjoyed it myself and would totally recommend. The lovely translator did a fabulous job too. Thanks so much, one of our Paris highlights.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

Oh what fun!!! Chef Didier could not have been more welcoming to us all. He had an interpreter on hand for those who didn't speak French, and won us all over with his outgoing and charming personality. His passion is absolutely contagious! There were a couple of children in the class and he arranged a special project for them, which was a really nice added extra. This is not a class where you are making the goods from start to finish, but there is a lot of hands-on experience involved. The class not only provides the how to but also explains the differences between various flours and what to look for. This was a fascinating class and Chef Didier's humour and passion made it top notch :

I bake at home and find the workshop helpful. Chef Didier was generously sharing tips and tricks. The workshop was almost 1 hour overtime - no complaints here as we got to learn more and eat yummy samples. Our translator Sara did a great job. The whole experience was good fun. And the recipes work!
